Coregas is providing its expertise in gasification, liquefaction and transportation of hydrogen to a world first project that will convert brown coal to hydrogen for export to Japan.

The $500m Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) project will see liquefied hydrogen produced from Latrobe Valley brown coal transported to Japan for use in fuel cell electric vehicles and power generation, in one of the world’s first efforts to commercialise technology to liquefy and transport hydrogen.

Coregas said it has been integral in providing engineering consultancy, onsite support and equipment for the hydrogen gasification plant at Loy Yang in the Latrobe Valley and the state-of-the-art liquefaction and loading facility at nearby Port of Hastings.

Coregas has been involved from the FEED (Front End Engineering Design) for the liquefaction plant, has provided support to the detailed design of the plant.

Further to this, Coregas is providing all the utility and specialised calibration gases to both facilities, the hydrogen compressor for the gasification plant and transportation services to move both liquefied and gaseous hydrogen.

Pre-commissioning for the Hastings facility will be commenced soon. Coregas has been awarded the contract for the Operation and Maintenance (O&M) of the liquefaction plant in its demonstration phase.
